Vitor Schietti is a talented Brazilian photographer and artist, who was born in 1986 and has lived in New Zealand, Montreal and Los Angeles before he’s back to Brazil and founded his own studio. For his series “Impermanent Sculptures” Victor uses fireworks to create images of illuminated trees and dancing patterns. To produce the images, the artist sets off fireworks at twilight. When the light is just right, Schietti uses a long exposure camera.

“While some images are acquired in one single exposure, some others are composed by the process of overlaying bits of light paintings from two or more pictures to compose the final image. Apart from this process and some color and contrast adjustments, the result is basically untouched, conceived entirely from real performance with fireworks. By creating these images, which I refer to as Impermanent Sculptures, I draw the viewer’s attention to abstract concepts taking place in real environments.”
